ACCOMPLICE WITNESS FOR THE CROWN

[2013] EWCA Crim 83 [2013] EWCA Crim 83

An interview by police officers with an accomplice witness, at the request of counsel for the Crown, to address inconsistencies in his witness statement after he had undergone a lengthy process of statement-taking should not have happened. However, the trial was not rendered unfair as the trial process was apt to cope with the situation.
